This increases the amount of new trail currently funded or
under construction along the cross-state National Road
Heritage Trail initiative to 7 miles, as shown on the NRHT map page.
It will also significantly reduce the size of one of the
larger gaps in that initiative in central Indiana.
The City of Greencastle received in
Round 3 of the State of Indiana's Next Level Trails grant
program $2 million to build/upgrade about 2.4 miles of
trail along the NRHT corridor. This includes
completing the paved Campus Link Trail across the west
half of the city and upgrading the existing 0.8-mile Phase
1 of the Putnam Nature Trail and a trailhead from stone to
paved on the southwest side of the city. (State's
announcement) This will extend the continuous
length of open NRHT in Putnam and Hendricks Counties to 15
miles (Vandalia Trail, People Pathways, Campus Link Trail,
Putnam Nature Trail Phase 1).
Round 3 Next
Level Trails Grant Goes to Greencastle:
The overall project is expected to take 3-4 years to
complete. See the location on the NRHT maps page.
National Road Heritage Trail, Inc. will donate the Putnam
Nature Trail Phase 1 property to the city of Greencastle
as part of this project.
